In Cloud Installations, The Fine Details Matter Most

As the importance of digital solutions increases, companies are recognizing the benefits and opportunities that the public cloud provides.

While many have an appetite for a quick migration, the journey to the cloud cannot be rushed. Every detail is critical. While it is possible to quickly choose standard options to get your cloud up and running, failing to understand the implications of each setting may cost you more, or worse, harm your business.

Maplewave intimately understands the work that goes into a successful cloud migration. In 2018, we moved our Software as a Service (SaaS) infrastructure to Amazon Web Services (AWS) after recognizing the many benefits of the public cloud. Through that process, we've gained valuable real-world experience that will help our clients achieve the best results with their own projects.

Cloud Benefits

Predictable Expenses

Pay nothing except for your monthly operating expenses. The cloud eliminates large capital expenditures related to hardware failures or replacements.

Unlimited Scalability & Agility

Quickly and cost-effectively expand or contract your service footprint based on your customers' requirements - no extra hardware to buy.

High Availability

Reliable systems with built-in redundancy means your services are more available than ever and can be replicated around the world if neccessary.

Geographic Diversity

Application services can be placed in different regions around the world to eliminate latency and boost performance.

Growth Forecasting

The cloud gives unmatched visibility into how much each service costs to maintain, which results in more accurate growth forecasting.

How We Help

While many consultants claim they can help you transition to the public cloud, few have actually done it themselves. Our real-world AWS experience will guide you through this complex project to ensure you get the best results.

Best Practices

Amazon's "Well Architected Framework" provides guidelines for building secure, high-performing, resilient, and efficient cloud infrastructure. Unfortunately, many overlook these best practices in pursuit of a quicker deployment, which limits the scalability and opens them to risk.

Maplewave can help you plan or review your cloud infrastructure in line with these best practise to ensure a future-proofed deployment that take full advantage of everything the cloud has to offer.

Security

One of the biggest barriers to cloud adoption is the fear that your applications and data will be vulnerable to hackers or "threat actors". In reality, the public cloud is as secure as you make it. With careful attention and the right tools, the cloud can be more secure than if you used your own servers.

Maplewave can help you optimize your security settings and further bolster it with powerful tools to keep your data safe.

Cloud Optimization

Cloud pricing is complex. There are multiple ways to procure cloud services and not all of them are intuitive. From on-demand to spot instances and savings plans, there are many options to choose from - and it's likely that only one or two might make sense for your business.

Make sure you don't overpay. Maplewave can help you understand and choose the right pricing plan and decipher your billing statements.

Infrastructure Management

The cloud isn't a destination, it's a new way of doing business. Once the infrastructure is built and the applications and data are in place, what comes next? At this point, you'll likely need DevOps engineers to manage the ongoing security, infrastructure, and application requirements.

Maplewave can help manage your ongoing security, infrastructure and application requirements. If this is something you'd like to discuss, we are here for you.
